Sustainable by Design: Explorations in Theory and Practice
Routledge, 2006 - Počet stran: 244
To advance the subject of design one has to engage in the activity of designing. Sustainable by Design offers a compelling and innovative, design-centred approach that explores both the meaning and practice of sustainable design. Walker explores the design process in the context of sustainability, and challenges conventional ways of defining, designing and producing functional objects. He discusses the personal design process, tacit knowledge, ephemeral design, experimental design, and the relationship between intellectual design criteria, physical expression and aesthetic experience.
This book will introduce vital concepts to students and will inspire designers by providing a well-articulated basis for understanding the complexity and potential of sustainable design, and extolling the contribution of design to the creation of a more meaningful material culture.
the cage of aesthetic convention
the evolution of a contemporary myth
a journey in design
objects as symbols of beauty
how the other half lives
the attraction of opposites
unmasking the object
crushed before the moth
after the endgame
the considered gaze
